Great article! Although I am Black, I completely related to this piece because we have the same unfortunate affliction of colorism in our community. Lighter-skinned Black women are more desired by most Black men and regarded as more beautiful than those of us who have a darker skin tone. I write and speak about self-love and spend a great deal of time affirming and validating the worth of women of color, particularly women of a darker hue and it was beautiful to see an article uplifting women. Thanks so much for sharing.
